comment Why is it hard to make a Java program 'appear native'?
"SWT for example tried to 'look native', and doesn't completely succeed" SWT might have other problems, but it looks fully native to me (further, as one answer comments: it's native). The canonical example is Eclipse.

comment Methods as verbs: is the object the subject?
@LokiAstari: But, precisely, that's not the semantic of the "write" method. We are not asking the object to write (it is not the subject of the verb), but "we" (the caller) are writing to it.

comment Do employers prefer software engineering over CS majors?
+1 For "The fact that they have a degree means [...] they are focused enough to work toward a long-term goal." This is definetely something.
